Sauce glaze is a kind of high temperature glaze with iron as colorant. It is named for its glaze color, such as persimmon yellow or sesame sauce.
Mention sauce glaze, often give a person with vague feeling, some people call it “Purple set”. But we can be sure that the ancients were able to distinguish these colors from the intuitive vision. Some people call the sauce glaze “red glaze”, “he glaze”, “ochre glaze” and “brown glaze”. These colors are also clearly recorded in ancient literature. As for the use of “soy color” to describe porcelain glaze color, the concept itself is very broad, it is difficult to define the exact color position. It seems that the use of the substitute of sauce as a color noun appears later. After the Qing Dynasty, the color of soy sauce has become a proper noun in parallel with purple, red, green, green and black.
Because the sauce itself will present a series of color transformations such as milky yellow, yellow, yellow red, red yellow, brown red and brown black at the beginning, middle and end of fermentation, experts pointed out that as long as the high temperature glaze with iron as the colorant is brown yellow, even if some of them are ochre, purple, red or brown, they can be called sauce glaze. As for some pure purple or red glazes, it is better to call them “purple” or “red” according to the literature.
Sauce glaze porcelain is one of the ancient high temperature color glaze varieties in China. In the late Eastern Han Dynasty, sauce glaze porcelain appeared in the southern Jiangsu and Zhejiang areas, and developed in the Jin Dynasty. In the northern and Southern Dynasties, the northern kilns represented by the northern Jiabi kiln began to make sauce glazed porcelain, which developed in the Sui and Tang Dynasties. During the song, Liao and Jin Dynasties, the production of sauce glaze porcelain spread all over the country, but the northern kilns were still the main kilns. Ding kiln, Yaozhou Kiln and Dangyangyu kiln were the models. During the yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, with the formation of the national porcelain industry center, Jiangxi Jingdezhen kiln produced a unique branch of sauce glaze porcelain. Song Dynasty is the golden period of the development of sauce glaze porcelain. The kilns in the north and South are generally fired. Yaozhou Kiln, Dingyao kiln and Dangyangyu kiln in the north are the outstanding representatives. The paste glaze porcelain of Dangyangyu kiln can be regarded as an outstanding representative, “the opening time color is amazing, and the copper color is like Zhu Bai and jade. “Although the brilliance of tangyangyu kiln’s sauce glaze porcelain has been fading away in the golden age and the long smoke, this splendid but not warm, quiet but not gorgeous, mysterious and not heavy excellent porcelain with special beauty has not disappeared in the long river of historical memory, but has written its brilliant course again with the brilliant official kiln atmosphere, which is exactly the sauce glaze porcelain. The charm of utensils is memorable.
